Gschmidt - Time Tolled EP [mtk134]


Published
Topics Electronic


Some of the releasers on Monotonik are more mysterious than others. But we quite enjoy it when the more shadowy ones turn up, slip us a gorgeous piece of music, and then slink away into the ether again. All we know about Gschmidt is that he might be named after a mathematic process, his previous 'Nibiru Coming' release precis-ed rogue planet paranoia excellently, and this new 'Time Tolled EP' is a wonderful journey through some kind of wilfully odd, strangely beautiful soundscape. But if we get the musical goods, then zero disclosure is good by us.

Thus, this time, 'Rise' blossoms beautifully into a languid, almost indescribable melange of live and synthesized instruments, before 'Shine' bridges the gap into the alien vocals and Teutonic authority of 'Holiday'. From there on out, the title track is an informed drift through the further reaches of the space time continuum, before 'Remember December' rises into almost transcendent Mercury Rev territory, vocals and brass and crazily beautiful codas in full effect.

Subject: Great EP
Since last week I´ve heard this work for dozens of times. It´s really an amazing work that make me search for other titles of the artist. I found now "Nibiru coming" and i´m download it now. I am almost certain that it will worth.
The music itself, is very relaxating but with power, good musical ideas and not repeating the same from track to track, ie, any track is a world to discover. I found some references with (good old) Tangerine Dream for example, and the same attitude of discovery and liberty of krautrock, what, for me is wonderful.
I hope this artist/group will have a comercial well succeeded carrier. For me, i don't want to lost his trail.

This is an amazing release. Everything is so subtle, yet everything is beautiful. I truly enjoyed this release. Remember December is an amazing piece. Remarkebly unique, each song is an ever changing and mysterious soundscape.
